Savagery in it's most compelling form
I have to say I liked this film a lot. It was different than some other horror movies I've seen. Sure, it borrowed from some of George Romero's films, but it still was original in it's own way. I liked the fact that it was filmed digitally. It really gave the movie a gritty, real feeling. The performances were great. Especially Cillian Murphy, as Jim. He fit his character very well. This is the first UK Horror/sci-fi film I've seen, and it was refreshing to get away from typical Teen slashers. I cared about the characters here, to me they were very likable, and realistic. I recommend. It's like Dawn of The Dead meets Lord Of The Flies.
Lord of the Flies (1990)
A Disappointing Film
I watched this movie during my English Class a few weeks back, and I have to say, it was rather disappointing. I loved the book, the story was very interesting, unlike anything I've ever read. When we watched the movie, I knew it would be different, but I didn't think it would be THIS different. The story almost completely changes, nothing but the bear bones of the book are left, and it made me sort of angry. It was cartoonish, and lacked any symbolism whatsoever. The book was great because of it, and here it lacks something. I feel that someone who hasn't read the book will laugh, they probably wouldn't understand what is going on. So much of the plot was taken out. The acting is okay though, Balthazar Getty does a good job as Ralph. Despite the boys being American here, he reminded me of the Ralph in the book.
